Prayas Nepal is a non-profit and non-governmental organization without any religious and political affiliation. The journey of a thousand miles began on 1st May, 2003, and we have irrevocably dedicated ourselves to help children in need. Prayas Nepal has continuously been striving to protect the rights of children, women and senior citizens and providing homes for the orphan and abandoned children with educational facilities.
Our story began with the establishment of a children’s home in a rented house in Kathmandu, designed to house and support up to 10 orphans and underprivileged children
We relocated our children’s home to a larger home that can accommodate 25 children due to the overwhelming volume of enrolment requests. This was a significant step as it allowed us to review the practices that we had then adopted and considerably work on to improve and expand its operations and services, thereafter. Henceforth, it has accommodated more than 40 children (80% more), providing a healthy and sound environment for the children to thrive on love and care.
We relocated to Baluwatar to our building, which was built to accommodate 45 kids. This was carried out specifically to guarantee the children a stable and safe environment by giving them a permanent place to live.The children’s home stands as a symbol of our commitment to addressing the challenges of child abandonment and poverty. Housing over 40 children it offers security and assurance, ensuring each child’s fundamental needs are met. We embrace children from diverse backgrounds—abandoned, orphaned, abused, and those who have experienced trauma due to the loss of their parents—providing nothing but immense love and support.
We strive to achieve lasting improvements in the quality of life, living with dignity and purpose of deprived children, women, and senior citizens by:
Protecting – Right of children, women, and senior citizens
Providing – Abode for orphan and abandoned children; and formal and non-formal education
Promoting – Water, sanitation, and hygiene; health and nutrition; environmental protection and relief work during natural calamities
We envision transforming lives for good; an equitable world where children, women and elderly thrive in love, care and support
Accountability: Hold ourselves accountable for the quality of our every-day activities and for the commitments it makes towards fulfilling our objectives
Integrity: Act honestly and transparently
Love and Compassion: Love and care is the center of everything we do. Go out of our ways to help those in dire straits
Inclusivity: Equal access to resources, opportunities, and opportunities for those who might be marginalized or excluded otherwise
Collaborating: Helping and joining hands with other organizations and individuals with similar goals for a better society
While you are reading this, thousands of children live in the terror of being alone right now and are forced to navigate life independent of parental figures. Children embody prosperity, fundamental assets, and the future of a nation. The organization, upon realizing it, devoted itself to the mission of safeguarding the tentative beginning stages of the abandoned and the “left-behinds”.
According to Nepal’s statistical data project, there are 11.5 million children in Nepal, and out of them about 1, 00,000 are orphans.We are acutely aware of the circumstances surrounding abandoned children, understanding that their suffering holds a unique and paramount significance among various forms of pain. Harsh social realities, including single-parent households, economic hardship, unequal distribution of national wealth, limited economic opportunities, social structures, and political conflicts, contribute to the deprivation of fundamental necessities such as food, clothing, shelter, and education for a significant number of children.
